Abstract :

In the reaction of the anticancer drug cis diamminedichloroplatinum(II) (cis-DDP) with DNA, bifunctional intrastrand and interstrand cross-links are formed, In this work, we show that at 37 degrees C interstrand cross-links (ICL) are labile and rearrange into intrastrand cross-links, The ICL instability was first studied with a 10 base pairs (bp) double-stranded oligonucleotide containing a unique site-specific ICL resulting from chelation of the N7 position of two guanine residues on the opposite strands of DNA at the d(GC/GC) site by a cis-diammineplatinum(II) residue.
